Fox suffers Catastrophic loss in viewership

It’s been coming. Especially after their block buster week the week before with the highest ratings ever, they crash like a rock after blowing up their election night coverage. There were lots of big hints along the way that the end of their loyal fans were getting tired of Fox network’s lean to the left. But refusing to call Florida and calling Arizona before the voters were finished voting did the trick.

Here is a good example:

BREAKING: FOX NEWS Cuts Away From Kayleigh McEnany Briefing on Election Fraud — Neil Cavuto Says Network ‘Can’t Verify Her Claims’ So They Will Not Air

We had the example of

Newt Gingrich gets cut off Fox for blaming violence on George Soros UPDATE: Harris APOLOGY

But the best part:

The Fox News Channel crashed in ratings on Saturday, coming in a distant third place to leader CNN and second place MSNBC. In the week before Tuesday’s election Fox News averaged more than double the viewership of CNN and MSNBC.

(Note: USA Today did not report Fox’s third place numbers for Saturday night, however the NY Times’ Michael Grynbaum reported Fox only had three million viewers.)

CNN beat the TV competition in total viewers Saturday with 4.2 million (as well as leading for adults 25-54 and younger viewers 18-34), according to Nielsen. MSNBC was second with 3 million, Fox News Channel third with 1.73 million.

The AP reported last Tuesday that Fox News prime time hosts scored record ratings the week before the election and that overall Fox dominated CNN and MSNBC by more than double in viewership

…Fox News averaged 5.03 million viewers for the week, easily topping the cable networks. MSNBC had 2.36 million, ESPN had 2.15 million, CNN had 1.95 million and Hallmark had 1.56 million.

Massive election fraud is on its way – watch out for State Secretaries

 

Soros has been at work getting little known State office’s filled with his sycophants. We hear a lot about District Attorney offices being filled with left wing radicals. But it is the Secretaries of State that control how voting takes place and certifies elections. Here is why we need to worry.

 

 

 

Add this to the mix.  

“The judge’s stay today is simply a recognition that the multitude of issues surrounding Pennsylvania’s dangerous voting system—including ballot harvesting and double voting—touch both federal and state constitutional issues. The federal court is simply going to reserve its judgment on this in the hopes that the state court will resolve these serious issues and guarantee that every Pennsylvanian has their vote counted—once,” Clark added. 

 

 

The real deal are the State Secretary offices. Think it doesn’t matter? Look what happened with having Mark Ritchie Secretary of State in Minnesota and the Al Franken win. Who is Mark Ritchie?

Ritchie in the 1990s had been a member of the now-defunct socialist New Party.[20] Moreover, he has ideological ties to the Communist Party USA and has been described by communist Tim Wheeler as a “friend” of the Party.

It gave us Obamacare with the 60th vote.

Minnesota’s November election for U.S. Senate, Republican incumbent Norm Coleman finished 725 votes ahead of Democratic challenger Al Franken; the thin margin of victory, however, triggered an automatic recount. With Mark Ritchie presiding over the recount process during the ensuing weeks, Coleman’s lead gradually dwindled due to what journalist Matthew Vadum describes as a long series of “appalling irregularities” that invariably benefited Franken.

As USA Today reported at the time: “The political battle for control of the federal government has opened up a new front: the obscure but vital state offices that determine who votes and how those votes are counted.”[11]

The Secretary of State Project (SoSP) was established in July 2006 as an independent “527” organization devoted to helping Democrats get elected to the office of secretary-of-state in selected swing, or battleground, states.

One of the principal duties of the secretary of state is to serve as the chief election officer who certifies candidates as well as election results in his or her state.[2] The holder of this office, then, can potentially play a key role in determining the winner of a close election. Funding included George Soros. Other players were Mark Ritchie.

To establish “election protection” against similar disappointments in subsequent political races, SoSP in 2006 targeted its funding efforts on the secretary-of-state races in seven swing states: Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, and Ohio.[10]

Democrats emerged victorious in five of those seven elections, all except Colorado and Michigan. Politico.com would later characterize SoSP as “an administrative firewall” designed, “in anticipation of a photo-finish presidential election,” to protect Democrats’ “electoral interests in … the most important battleground states.”[12]

In 2008, SoSP supported Democratic secretary-of-state candidates in Missouri, Montana, Oregon and West Virginia; all four Democrats won. These results represented yet another high return on a relatively small financial investment for SoSP.

Brunner went on to make her influence felt in several significant ways two years later, during the 2008 election cycle:

  • She ruled that Ohio residents should be permitted, during the designated early-voting period extending from late September to early October, to register and vote on the very same day.[15]
  • In a separate matter, Brunner sought to effectively invalidate many of the approximately one million absentee-ballot applications that Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s campaign had issued. Each of those forms had been printed with a checkbox next to a statement affirming that the voter was a qualified elector; Brunner maintained that if an applicant failed to check the box—even if he or she signed the form—the application could be rejected. But Republicans noted that state law did not require the box to be checked as long as the voter signed the ballot. The Ohio Supreme Court subsequently overturned Brunner’s directive on grounds that it served “no vital purpose or public interest.”[16] 
  • In October 2008, Brunner refused to comply with county election-board requests that she turn over approximately 200,000 voter-registration forms in which the name did not match the driver’s license or Social Security number.[17]

…….snip

Another early beneficiary of SoSP support was Democrat Mark Ritchie, who, with SoSP help in 2006, defeated a two-term incumbent Republican in the race for Minnesota secretary of state. Ritchie acknowledged his debt to SoSP when he said, “I want to thank the Secretary of State Project and its thousands of grass-roots donors for helping to push my campaign over the top.”[18] Other contributors to Ritchie’s campaign included Heather BoothDrummond Pike, Deborah Rappaport (wife of venture capitalist Andrew Rappaport), and George Soros.

A former community organizer with close ties to ACORN,[19] Ritchie in the 1990s had been a member of the now-defunct socialist New Party.[20] Moreover, he has ideological ties to the Communist Party USA and has been described by communist Tim Wheeler as a “friend” of the Party.[21]

UPDATE:

Detroit Absentee Ballot Chaos: ‘So Inaccurate We Can’t Even Attempt to Make Right’

Wayne County, Michigan, leaders want the Secretary of State to intervene after there was chaos while counting absentee ballots on primary election night.

The Detroit News reported:

Recorded ballot counts in 72% of Detroit’s absentee voting precincts didn’t match the number of ballots cast, spurring officials in Michigan’s largest county to ask the state to investigate ahead of a pivotal presidential election.

Without an explanation from Detroit election workers for the mismatches, the Wayne County Board of Canvassers requested this week for Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson’s office to examine the “training and processes” used in Detroit’s Aug. 4 primary, which one official described as a “perfect storm” of challenges. The board is charged with certifying election results.

Forty-six percent of all precinct numbers were askew, canvassers were told

Ocasio-Cortez and her relationship to George Soros

 

There were few of us thought that the arrival of Ocasio-Cortez came from out of the blue. Our hunch included that perhaps Soros may have had his long fingers in this special find.

After all, a media darling in no time flat. Even after making a total fool of herself with her lack of savvy about most everything, the beat goes on. Merely a primary winner, she already has been chosen for President in say 2020?

It turns out she as well as Cynthia Nixon, candidate in New York for Governor had some powerful backing including from the George Soros’ Media Consortium.

Ocasio-Cortez was a Bernie Sanders organizer.

And as Rich Weinstein in a great Twitter thread points out, this is what her website looks like now:

 

But this is what it looked like last year according to the Wayback archive.

 

What is a Brand New Congress?

 

Their goal was to have 400 candidates to run for Congress by last year and each of those 400 is supposed to commit to a similar far left platform including immigration reform and the abolishment of ICE.

Justice Democrats were founded in part by Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks and former Bernie people. And they are promoting not just Congressional candidates but gubernatorial candidates like Cynthia Nixon in New York.

And as Ocasio-Cortez notes in this interview after with Uygur at the ten-minute mark that BNC and the Justice Democrats were instrumental in soliciting her and then promoting her “after she left Standing Rock” which means she was among the far left pipeline protesters.

 

Start at about the ten minute mark:

 

Uygur doesn’t, however, explain in the interview about his connection to the effort.

And Uygur’s Young Turks is part of the Soros Media Consortium that provided wattage for the Ocasio-Cortez campaign. According to the MRC, this provides favorable coverage to 300 million people across the globe in a month.

Oregon Governor gets Soros donation three days before refusing to send the National Guard to protect our borders

 

What coincidence. Three days after George Soros drops off a donation, Oregon’s Brown decides that her State’s  National Guard is staying home. No doubt just the first of many donations. Also as a reminder, Soros’s voting machines are being used in her State. So while the Left has us spinning with the Russia, Russia, Russia thing, Soros is infiltrating our election process with his voting machines. For more on our voting machines try an earlier post of mine.

Election Fraud? Add Microsoft’s Allen, Foreign Scytl election software, servers in Spain

Back to the story:

The Oregon RNC reported on Monday April 2nd, 2018, that the Oregon governor received a large donation from former Nazi collaborator and creepy billionaire George Soros –

Willamette Week is reporting that Governor Kate Brown has accepted “an unprecedented” campaign check from George Soros, a billionaire left-wing hedge-fund manager and campaign donor who resides in New York. This is Soros’ “first direct involvement” in Oregon.

“Kate Brown has consistently ignored problems facing everyday Oregonians and has instead used the office of Governor to make herself a national left-wing celebrity. Now, Brown is cashing in and taking big campaign donations from notorious leftist puppet master, billionaire George Soros,” stated Oregon Republican Chairman Bill Currier.

Three days later CNN reported –

Oregon’s governor says that if President Donald Trump asks to dispatch members of her state’s National Guard to the US southern border, she’ll “say no.” H/T: Gateway Pundit

Creepy and sinister Soros may have gifted Governor Brown to encourage her to encourage Oregon to keep his voting machines in place too. Oregon is one of 16 states that use Soros related voting machines.

Its website includes a flow-chart that describes how the company has contributed to elections in the U.S. from 2006-2015 with “57,000 voting and counting machines deployed” and “35 million voters assisted.”

Among the “case studies” that Smartmatic lists on its website as examples of its work are Venezuela, where it has been facilitating elections since 2004 when it “won a bid to provide Venezuela with a reliable voting system.”

It also lists Cook County, Illinois as another success story, when in “in 2006, Smartmatic signed what at the moment was the largest election automation contract in US history.

 

Soros supported Christie is no more after Kamikaze attack on Rubio

It was a puzzle at the last debate why Christie chose to decimate Rubio. After all, Trump was leading the pack. But then again, just who is/was Christie? What did he hope to accomplish? Was this the plan? Christie had been leaving little doubt all week that Rubio was going to be in his crosshairs come the debate.  So what is going to be the payback for him and who orchestrated it? So let take a look back and think about just who is the real Chris Christie from some of my earlier posts.

Chris Christie raking in the money from Dems – add George Soros to the list June 4, 2013 — bunkerville.

TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie is cashing in donations from top Democratic fundraisers and other traditionally liberal donors across the country, even nabbing the support of a handful of rainmakers aligned with President Obama and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a Star-Ledger review of state and federal records shows.

The checks are flying into the Republican governor’s war chest from all sorts of unlikely places — the hedge fund run by liberal billionaire George Soros, for example, and the politically progressive halls of the University of California, Berkeley.

Brigid Harrison, a political science professor at Montclair State University, said much of Christie’s Democratic support stems from a recent fundraiser in California with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

Palatucci (Christie’s campaign manager) declined to discuss the campaign’s fundraising strategy, but said Christie has done plenty to earn the backing of Democrats.

The Star-Ledger review found:

•â€…Five executives at Soros Fund Management have chipped in a combined $19,000 to the governor’s re-election campaign, state records show. The donor roll includes Soros’ protégé and chief investment officer, Scott Bessent, who tends to fund liberal Democrats, and Sender Cohen, a partner at the hedge fund who more often favors Republicans.

•John Doerr, a top Democratic fundraiser and venture capitalist in California, sent Christie the maximum $3,800 donation for the Republican primary this year. So did his wife. Federal records show the couple has given more than $1.2 million to national Democrats since 1997.

•Tim Mullen, a Chicago investor who gave more than $100,000 to Emanuel’s campaign for mayor in 2011 and bundled from $200,000 to $500,000 for Obama in 2008, has also sent Christie a maximum donation, as has his wife Alice. Mullen was already a Christie donor in 2009, state records show.

Governor Christie’s Relationship with Radical Islam 

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s nomination of Sohail Mohammed to be a state judge shows the governor’s tin ear for radical Islam. Not only did he appoint a longtime mouthpiece for radical Islamists to be a judge, but Christie has also turned a blind eye to the activities of one of Mohammed’s clients – radical imam Mohammed Qatanani, head of one of New Jersey’s largest mosques.

Qatanani has a history of Hamas support and was related by marriage to a leading Hamas operative in the West Bank. This fall, Qatanani will return to a New Jersey immigration court, where the Department of Homeland Security is fighting to have him deported. In his initial application for a green card filed in 1999, government lawyers say Qatanani failed to disclose a conviction in an Israeli military court for being a Hamas member and providing support to the terrorist group.

Oddly, Christie – a Republican who was then the U.S. Attorney for New Jersey – sided with Qatanani against DHS, allowing a top lieutenant, Assistant U.S. Attorney Charles McKenna, to testify as a character witness at Qatanani’s first immigration trial, and publicly embracing the imam at a Ramadan breakfast at his mosque. Christie later appointed McKenna as New Jersey’s head of homeland security..

As general counsel to the American Muslim Union (AMU), Mohammed often represented clients subject to government allegations concerning terrorists. The AMU often is highly critical of U.S. counter-terrorism efforts.

One online newsletter even included a claim that a “Zionist commando orchestrated the 9/11 terrorist attacks” and shows support for a “Rabbi” from the extremist Jewish organization Neturei Karta, which denies the right of Israel to exist and supports its dismantling.

N.J. turns away non-union power crews – Christie cut his deal

How desperate is hurricane-ravaged New Jersey? Not desperate enough to suspend a union monopoly that keeps the state in the bottom ten states for economic competitiveness (and #48 for business friendliness). Relief crews from Alabama who were specifically called to New Jersey found themselves diverted to Long Island, NY after they arrived because they use non-union labor. New Jersey folks will just have to wait to get their power on.

WAFF-TV of Hunstville, AL reports:

Crews from Huntsville, as well as Decatur Utilities and Joe Wheeler out of Trinity headed up there this week, but Derrick Moore, one of the Decatur workers, said they were told by crews in New Jersey that they can’t do any work there since they’re not union employees….

Understandably, Moore said they’re frustrated being told “thanks, but no thanks.”

This decade average temperatures have been rising, temperature changes are affecting weather patterns and our climate……

George Soros tells us how to rebuild the Asylum System

If we had any doubt as to who was behind the plan to swamp the Western world with third world “refugees”, you can doubt no more. This from the “horses mouth” Soros himself. I caught the take on it from George Soros and the Muslim invasion of Europe a post from American Thinker… then I went to Soros himself.

Soros has plans — BIG plans — for Europe to “put an end to the panic and the unnecessary human suffering.” For Muslims. Europeans will suffer plenty.

…a European plan must be accompanied by a global response, under the authority of the United Nations and involving its member states.

NEW YORK – The European Union needs to accept responsibility for the lack of a common asylum policy, which has transformed this year’s growing influx of refugees from a manageable problem into yet another political crisis. Each member state has selfishly focused on its own interests, often acting against the interests of others. This precipitated panic among asylum seekers, the general public, and the authorities responsible for law and order. Asylum seekers have been the main victims.

Here are the six components of a comprehensive plan.

First, the EU has to accept at least a million asylum-seekers annually for the foreseeable future. And, to do that, it must share the burden fairly – a principle that a qualified majority finally established at last Wednesday’s summit.

Adequate financing is critical. The EU should provide €15,000 ($16,800) per asylum-seeker for each of the first two years to help cover housing, health care, and education costs – and to make accepting refugees more appealing to member states.

Second, the EU must lead the global effort to provide adequate funding to Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey to support the four million refugees currently living in those countries.

Third, the EU must immediately start building a single EU Asylum and Migration Agency and eventually a single EU Border Guard. The current patchwork of 28 separate asylum systems does not work: it is expensive, inefficient, and produces wildly inconsistent results in determining who qualifies for asylum.

Fourth, safe channels must be established for asylum-seekers, starting with getting them from Greece and Italy to their destination countries. This is very urgent in order to calm the panic. The next logical step is to extend safe avenues to the frontline region, thereby reducing the number of migrants who make the dangerous Mediterranean crossing.

The operational and financial arrangements developed by the EU should be used to establish global standards for the treatment of asylum-seekers and migrants. This is the fifth piece of the comprehensive plan.

Finally, to absorb and integrate more than a million asylum seekers and migrants a year, the EU needs to mobilize the private sector – NGOs, church groups, and businesses – to act as sponsors. This will require not only sufficient funding, but also the human and IT capacity to match migrants and sponsors.

Hillary Clinton of the FCC’s move: ‘It’s a foot in the door’

Moonbattery brings us these pearls of wisdom from Hillary Clinton regarding the latest FCC move. Makes sense. She has to get in bed with the big boys for more loot for her foundation. And who spent millions to capture the last bastion of our Free Enterprise System?

Soros, Ford Foundations ‘Lavish’ $196 Million to Push Internet Regulations – See more at: Newsbusters

The Ford Foundation, which claims to be the second-largest private foundation in the U.S., and Open Society Foundations, founded by far-left billionaire George Soros, have given more than $196 million to pro-net neutrality groups between 2000 and 2013. 

As Pantsuit would say, “What difference does it make” and finally she admits what we all know is true:

“It’s a foot in the door.”

Shrillary was referring to Obama’s alarming attempts to use the FCC to do to the Internet what ObamaCare did to health insurance, and the EPA is doing to the coal industry.

The remark confirms that as with all federal regulation, its main purpose is to provide leverage so as to inflict further regulation. So long as a single unapproved thought can be expressed on the Internet, the fascistic likes of Obama and Shrillary will not be finished with it. (By the looks of this interview, she isn’t getting anymore adept at campaigning.)

Why the United States is giving away ownership of our Energy and Refineries

 

Yesterday my post was U.S. giving away ownership and control of our Energy and refineriesPaladin, who writes a great blog commented on the post, and it is worthy of a read. Pay him a visit if you haven’t done so. His response gives a succinct explanation of how we came to where we are. Where we are headed. Here we go:

The left’s grand idea to prevent WW III was to intertwine all of the key player’s economies so that could never happen because everybody would go broke. There are several outcomes from such a strategy, the first is that if one economy fails to thrive, all connected economies take a hit. This is why it is said that if the American economy has a cold, the rest of the world gets the flu. The flawed premise was that America’s economy would always be preeminent.

The second effect is a bit more subtle. As foreign influence grows, international policy becomes critical. This is why Obama’s foreign policy is so important. The fact that he basically doesn’t have one, is not good news. By being a follower and not a leader, Obama submits America to the will of her enemies by default. The third effect is massive corruption.

We have already seen the effect of such corruption with the collapse of the housing market in 2008. A collapse formed by the left holding a gun to the head of lenders and forcing them to make loans to people who could not pay them back. Banks sold these loans to investors who purchased insurance to limit risk and the rest is history. There were runs on commercial banks, but the public was kept calm and the consumer banks dodged a bullet. We began printing money around the clock in March of that year because the government saw what was coming and have never stopped. Flooding our economy with cash worked to calm fears initially, but economists believe that you cannot do so and avoid the consequence of run away inflation. While that has not happened yet, many believe that it is only a matter of time and that is why economic growth is slow as the economic shell game tries desperately to suck up all of that extra cash.

The fourth effect is overconfidence. Most in American government believe that our foreign co-conspirators, because the only way any of this works is with the cooperation of foreign powers, would never allow our economy to go belly up. If we go, they go. At least that is the thinking. But there may be ways around an economic collapse. The use of gold reserves for instance. Something that America no longer believes is necessary, but the Chinese and Russians still have. In fact, the Chinese have been buying gold steadily for years and hanging on to it. Could that mean that the Red Chinese would survive if the American economy collapses? Possibly. If the American economy implodes, the Red Chinese transition to the gold standard and possibly survive the chain reaction of economic collapse.

The untold story is that wealth is being created outside of the United States. As American assets are being carved up by foreign powers, the best and the brightest in those fields are going to work for them. American ownership of American resources is dwindling. And American citizens become beholden to foreign powers and not their own government. Who do you think these citizens will elect to that government? Will the public support policies that are not favorable to their employers? Why would a citizen care about something that he no longer has a vested interest in? That is the long range problem and one that terrifies the left when they consider the influence of capitalism, but not, strangely, when one trades the place of the capitalist with that of the foreign dictator.

As the foreign acquisition of American business continues to grow, so too does foreign influence on our government. Influence that may or may not have America’s best interests at heart. Such a circumstance does not see America as an equal, but as a resource to be tapped. Ultimately, that is the grave danger of foreign ownership and why colonialism failed. It’s just that in our case, there are no foreign troops. Although I would not be surprised to see such should the American economy fold.

We have never truly recovered economically from 9/11. While the loss of life was tragic, the economic damage was far worse. In short, we are very vulnerable economically right now. We spend like there is no tomorrow, and just wait until the medical bills begin to roll in from Obamacare. Cloward and Piven’s strategy is alive and well, and the aim is to crash the American economy to initiate governmental change by crisis.

There are a lot of pokers in the economic fire right now.

 

Soros activist hired by Fox. So much for fair and balanced.

As if putting up with Beckel and Colmes, two left wingers, were not enough, Fox News adds this number to their stable in the name of “fair and balanced”. Anyone who spouts the verbiage from Soros funded sources can hardly be claimed to give a balanced nor fair reporting of the news. But then again, the days of reporting the news are long gone. Who, what, where and when have disappeared since we neanderthals are incapable of drawing a conclusion. Just look at the analysis of the debates. We must be told what was said. Kohn’s own website claims her “Community Organizer” cred.  OK, time for me to move on. Here tis:

Sally Kohn, a former senior strategist at the Soros-funded Center for Community Change, has been hired as a Fox News Contributor.

The selection of Kohn raises disturbing questions about the direction of Fox News in a critical election year. Kohn worked at the Center for Community Change, one of the leading Soros-funded groups, for six years, from 2004—2010. During this period, the group received $5.8 million from Soros’s main vehicle, the Open Society Institute (OSI).

“Sally Kohn makes the world safe for radical ideas,” her website says. In fact, Kohn is a far-left radical who attended the 2003 World Social Forum in Brazil, a meeting place for groups which say they are opposed to capitalism and U.S. imperialism.

George Soros buying up flooded farm land

Back on April 5, 2010 I did a post called  George Soros makes move on controlling food supply. I was following up on an excellent  post by Conservatives on Fire who included in his story that Soros was buying up Grain Elevators.

One thing COF discovered is the Trojan Horse that no one is discussing. That being the attempt at controlling of our food supply. Grain Elevator Operators for the most part can control what the farmer ends up getting paid. They are the middle man.  I suggest we stay alert on this one. It is the way many farms were lost during the depression. They would get loans from the Operators, have a bad crop one year, or the Operator claiming there were problems with his product. The farmers have no where else to take their product. They get paid what the Operator decides.

 I also had done an earlier post which had some controversy with an interesting debate in the comments section:  U.S. farm subsidies- a necessary evil? .  

Now from Trevor Loudon

1. File this one under “Now It All Makes Sense”. A Missouri farming and ranching contact just got off a conference call wherein he was informed that the federal government is sending out letters to all of the flooded out farmers in the Missouri River flood plain and bottoms notifying them that the Army Corps of Engineers will offer to BUY THEIR LAND.

Intentionally flood massive acreage of highly productive farmground. Destroy people’s communities and homes. Catch them while they are desperate and afraid and then swoop in and buy the ground cheap. Those evil sons of bitches.

2. Speaking of evil sons of bitches, George Soros appears to be “investing” in farmground through the same puppet company that he used to get into the grain elevator and fertilizer business. The company is called Ospraie Capital Management and is buying up farmground in a joint venture with Teays River Investments as a partner. Here is that announcement:

Click Here

Okay. Here’s the connection. This Ospraie outfit was a hedge fund specializing in commodities that was started and run by some cocky child who didn’t know how to trade bear markets and got his butt kicked into next week in the grain market of 2008. He also lost a fortune trying to trade RARE EARTH METALS. In fact, it was so bad that he had to shut his fund down because he had promised his investors that he would give them all of their investment money back if the fund lost more than 30% in one year. Whoopsie.

But it appears that Soros swooped in and saved the day because this Ospraie is the “co-investor” with Soros that bought the remnants of ConAgra’s trading operation and renamed it… Gavilon. In the industry, it is widely acknowledged that Ospraie IS Soros. That three-page article citation is here, copy and paste the URL into your address bar:

http://money.cnn.com/2008/11/12/news/companies/ospraie_demos.fortune/
index.htm

As you probably remember, Gavilon just recently bought both DeBruce Grain out of Kansas City and the biggest grain elevator company in the Pacific Northwest, thus making Soros (who is the money behind Gavilon through both his own Soros Fund Management AND his de facto control of Ospraie) the third-largest grain company in the U.S. with 280 million bushels of storage capacity, behind only Archer Daniels Midland (542 million bushels storage capacity) and Cargill (344 million bushels storage capacity). That citation is here:

http://www.world-grain.com/News/News%20Home/Features/2010/12/A%20powerful%
20signal.aspx?p=1

Bottom line: Soros, through Ospraie, is buying up farmground. Please also note that the hotlink citation above is dated June 26, 2009. My contact says this has been going on for two years – and also remember what I told you about farmground prices inflating wildly, especially in Illinois. I have personally confirmed farmground in Illinois selling for $13,000 per acre within the last month, whereas that same kind of ground in Illinois was going for $5500 per acre the day Obama was inaugurated.

Spread the word. Trevor Loudon
